Here's a thread from 2003. However, the incident with the British tourist occurred in 1984, not 1991.
I forgot when I said it happened in 1991, could you remind me?

And really, it's more bewildering to me that a British tourist would even have a shirt with Phil Sliver's face on it.
Why? I've met several British people who could in theory appreciate Phil Silvers, and several more who would wear tshirts with a person's face on it. Did you just mean it seemed improbable, as opposed to it being bewildering?
